Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • Ogunquit has to be the best beach! Ogunquit has the beach with surf on one side and the river on the other side, so you can play in the waves on one side of the beach and tube in and out with the tide...  more »
  • Ogunquit Beach has as much charm and beauty in the winter as it does in the summer minus the hoards of tourists. A walk on the beach in January has its own unique tranquility  more »

  • Beautiful place to walk and enjoy the views all year round. Actually went up towards the end of October, the foliage was amazing, and it was still pretty warm. Came back two weeks later much cooler, but not unbearably cold. Took our kayaks out in the cove, very nice smooth current, enjoyable paddling very relaxing. The water was very cold, but so clear and clean it was amazing. Can't wait to go back again.
  • This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Eastern seaboard. Great little town as well. Always enjoy my time here. It's a must see...
  • Annual favorite area to vacation. Great small town atmosphere. Lots of good eats and beautiful ocean vistas. Love the marginal way trail along the shore.
  • One of its kind. You have a big stream of fresh water entering the sea. A clean beach with a great view.
  • Top 10 beach in all of the USA love the town You have to arrive by 8am in the summer not much space for parking. The town has not changed it's values in the last 50 years. The best family beach
